out of mississippi and other places. it was happening right there in georgia. we were at the courthouse that night, standing -- because they war counting the paper ballots and we were watching them count the ballots, and out of the back room the gator walked past us and spoke. then he realized after walking a few feet away he had just spoken to sheryl sherrod. he was angry because we had been having meetings and my father kept saying do not put another johnson in office. so he walked a few feet away and came back and said, i take that back. i didn't know who you were. and so he is standing there, with a gun on his side, and my husband is standing there, and they are staring each other -- just staring at each other, and i was about to have a heart attack, because i knew, even with all of those people in the room, that gator was just mean enough to pull his gun out with everyone there to shoot. but someone ran outside and got his son, the one would was running for office, and then he ran in there and grabbed his daddy by the arm and said, come on, just leave that alone.
